Natural ways to prevent allergies

The warmer seasons may pose ample opportunity to enjoy the sunshine, but they also invite a hefty nuisance – seasonal allergies. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, mild temperatures can cause plants to pollinate early, which means allergy season could last anytime between February and early summer months in the U.S.

While the medical “experts” are often telling you to treat your seasonal allergy symptoms with over-the-counter prescription drugs, that’s not your only option. In all actuality, you should be straying far from the path the medical community pushes and follow a more natural approach. God provided miraculous self-healing bodies if we would simply provide the conditions that support healing – optimal diet and timely, efficient elimination of toxins.

Genesis 1:11-12

“And God said, ‘Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.’ And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.” 

Follow the Hallelujah Diet

According to the wise words of the Rev. George Malkmus, in his book “God’s Original Diet,” eliminating the initial cause of allergies is the best way to combat those uncomfortable symptoms. What’s the solution? Fueling your body with a 100% whole food, plant-based diet with about 85% of it being raw foods, fresh juices, etc. By avoiding the Standard American Diet, you can reduce your risk of developing mucous and other allergy symptoms.  Check out a few more tricks for eliminating your seasonal allergies:

A raw, plant-based diet can reduce your risk of experiencing seasonal allergies in the first place.

1. Consume more turmeric

Did you know that turmeric is used as a remedy for treating many sicknesses and diseases? This spice doesn’t only provide flavoring for food. It also detoxifies the liver, balances cholesterol levels, boosts the immune system, strengthens the digestive system and fights allergies. Turmeric decreases aggravated Kapha, which is known to increase mucous, congestion and sinus problems. The active component of turmeric that is often credited with providing the benefit is curcumin. The Hallelujah Diet BioCurcumin provides this active component in one of the most bio-available forms.

2. Use Professional Strength DHA

According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, foods and supplements with omega-3 fatty acids can help protect the body from experiencing allergic reactions in regard to seasonal allergies. That’s why we suggest our Professional Strength DHA, as its rich in docosahexaenoic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid.

3. Try butterbur

The National Center for Complementary Integrative Health reported that butterbur, a plant that grows in Europe, Asia and North America, has been known to host healing properties for a number of health issues. Not only does it have a reputation to relieve gastrointestinal and urinary tract conditions, but it also provides comfort for nasal allergies, allergic skin reaction, migraine headache and asthma. Butterbur is extracted to create a topical treatment, not consumable supplement, so keep that in mind.
